After School – Jacksonville

Our classroom is ready to go and we can’t wait to decorate it with projects and pictures from another great year of After School at Giggles and we want you to join us! Our program has filled up quickly, and we ask that you please call to check availability for any schools that are sold out online!

We are pleased to offer after school care and pickup from area elementary schools during the school year. We currently pick up from the following elementary schools: Carolina Forest, Jacksonville Commons, Stateside, Parkwood, and Silverdale.

Here is how it works:

Each After School option will give you four hours of care from the time your child is released from school. When we get back to the center we will have a snack, complete homework, have a group activity, and then free play until you pick them up. Our program has a maximum of 25 children and our homework ratio is a max of 1:5 (it’s usually much lower)! Our group activities change every day, Monday’s we play group games and team-building challenges, Tuesdays we have Minute to Win it challenges, Wednesdays we work on art, Thursdays we explore science, and Fridays we play outside (weather permitting).

Below you will find all of our package options. Don’t see what you need? Give us a call if you need part-time care or extended hours 910-939-2685.
